    Your house is gorgeous! I love the garland with the ornaments hanging from it.

    And, side note — I LOVE your zebra bench! And whole closet-room looking thing! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Your home looks just lovely, Julie! I love that shot of you at the front door. I have that same wrapping paper container! I use it just for all my Christmas wrap, tissue paper and tags. I used to spread out on my dining room table in the old house, but I've been keeping things pretty neat in the new place. I store the container with everything in it in our guest room but bring it out into the living room when I'm wrapping.

    your wrapping room looks better than my so called wrapping room!

    I love your nativity and the significance behind it…AND placed in a prominent area of the home to remind every one.

    Looks nice! I have a 'wrapping station' set up in my bedroom that looks very similar, except I'm using a card table. Will be glad when I'm done, and it's nicely put away!

    Your home is gorgeous! From the entry-way to the gingerbread house in the cloche to the wreaths on the windows, I love everything about it. I have the same nativity set.

    Julie, your home is gorgeous and so pretty all decked out for Christmas! I love the piano room (and the fact that you have a room called "the piano room"!!!)
    Your trees are lovely and most especially, I adore how prominently you display the reason for the season…all over your house. Thanks for sharing and inspiring!
    Wishing you and your family a merry merry Christmas!

    Your Christmas decor is beautiful. My favorite piece is the framed wreath that has the banner Jesus is the Reason for the season. I loved your tutorial about the square wreaths too! Thanks for the magnificent tour.

    Your home is beautiful, and beautifully decorated for Christmas, and the sweets in all the different containers, will they last through the season, or will some be eaten along the way?

    MERRY CHRISTMAS!

    Love how you are greeting us at the front door. That is the biggest lantern I have seen yet. Perfect for the gingerbread house.

    Love it! Your house is really beautiful, Julie. I especially love your cafe shelves, which is what I use to decorate our living room, since we don't have a mantle. Just like you, I wanted our nativity scene to be prominent in our decor, especially for our kids. I decided to incorporate the advent calendar I made for our daughter right into the nativity scene. The calendar is a little village of houses grouped around the nativity. It's supposed to be Bethlehem :).

    I love the warm and welcome look of your decorating. It is simple and not over done, I love that!! Yes, indeed I do have a room just like that!!! I think we all do this time of year, if we are busy with decorating, baking, wrapping and all the fun that comes along with this wonderful season, Merry Christmas,

    Thank you for the tour of your beautiful home, your Christmas decorations are inspiring and lovely. You're a brave soul sharing your wrapping space – my youngest son's room is a disaster that needs to be clean in 3 days for his arrival – and I'm blog browsing ๐Ÿ™‚

    Merry Christmas!

    Love it! Of course I had already "toured" your Christmas house, but loved seeing it again at the Inspired Room Christmas tours. I finally got mine on there too if you're interested in visiting me! Would love to have you! Have a Mery Christmas!
